. speaker. cybersecurity threats represent one of the most serious national security and economic challenges we face in our nation. whether it's criminal hackers, organized crime, terrorist networks or nation states, our nation is under siege from dangerous cybersecurity threats that grow daily in frequency and sophistication. it is critical that the federal government address cybersecurity threats in a manner that keeps pace with our nation's growing dependence on technology. but current federal law does not adequately address the nature of today's cybersecurity threats. since its enactment in 2002 of the federal information security administration act, it has become the check the box compliance legislation that has little to do with minimizing cyberthreats, and yet the government accountability office recently found that security incidents among 24 key information increased by 650%, or more than six-fold in the last five years. to address the rising challenge poised by cyberthreats, ranking member cummings and myself introduced in the last congress a bill to re-authorize fizz ma. -- fisma.

. i want to bring in allen, director of research at the cybersecurity training organization. we watched two men shut down boston for days. that's a visible face of terrorism. the invisible, the countless hits from hackers all over the world every single day. how real is the threat of cyberterrorism? >> it's very real. in saudi arabia cyberterrorists took out 30,000 computers, just destroyed them. so it's physical damage being done but the real worry right now is financial loss. because our money used to be in vaults. now it's in a computer. when that computer goes away when you get online and there's zero in your checking account, it's the same as losing the money. and its -- go ahead. >> so if hackers are taking aim at our banks and we know they are, what kind of damage could this cause? can we overcome it and how quickly? >> well you saw what happens in a very short time. it comes right back no problem at all. if it lasts, if people try to get on and they cannot find their money and they call the bank and the bank says well we have technical troubles. we'l
